The book takes place on planet Zyron. Lane and Connor are brothers. They are Citizens ruled by a Zyre government which is in turn a puppet of their Khaltar overlords. Connor works for the mob, but tries to keep his brother away from that environment. However, a confrontation changes both their lives forever.
The book starts out well, but about half-way through, once certain matters are resolved, it starts to lose focus. There are a few slips in logic, and the writing could do with more polish in places.
Some of the dialogue and character interaction is very good. One plot twist in particular was enjoyably reminiscent of Philip K. Dick. And the ending, though perhaps not everyone's taste, I enjoyed. I thought it was really gutsy. The writer is obviously willing to take risks.
